    We just came back from our first Disney trip and used the DAS (Disability Acess Pass) for our 6 yr old son with ASD. It went so well that we are surprising him with a trip back in April for his birthday. Will we have to re-register for the DAS again?

    Hello Tracy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    Oh my goodness Tracy, I have to say that it really warms my heart to know you and your dear son enjoyed such a magical 1st ever trip to Walt Disney World Resort that you're already planning on a surprise return visit this coming April for his birthday!  Plus of course I'm thrilled to hEar you found the wonderful Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities at Walt Disney World Resort and the Disability Access Service (DAS) helped you both gain the most magic from your recent trip.  
    I'm happy to share that at present the Disability Access Service (DAS) card is valid for up to 60 days from the date of registration; which I believe means at the beginning of your April visit you'll need to stop by any Disney Theme Park Guest Relations to speak with a Cast Member and re-register for a new DAS card.  Also as part of your special birthday visit be sure to ask Cast Members for an 'I'm celebrating' button for your Mouseketeer - wearers of these cute buttons are often wished a happy birthday from Cast Members and other Guests alike. 
    In addition I also thought you may find this Planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort to be an extra useful resource for your upcoming April visit. 
    Have a great Disney day.
